Gashora Girls Academy student, Mazimpaka Christelle, defines writing as a tool that can be used by Africans to reach their success. Christelle writes to express herself and believes that science becomes more useful when combined with the reality of life. She appreciates that fact that although she is at a STEM school, GGAST encourages students to find their passions and their voice as part of the whole-girl education.

A Word To Say
by Christelle Mazimpaka
"A word to a wise is enough" A wise man said
A word is a simple combination of alphabets that brings up a definition
Or a content that is related to what you say
A word matters a lot to us
A word made you and me
A word made the world
Our majesty God himself in heaven used a word for us to be us
A word is crucial and essential
It ensures that you ensured to be exposing
your abilities and inabilities more so one's personality
A word can be good or bad according to how you let it be
And ways you say it
A word can build, strengthen, affect and destroy so many things irrespective of the size or length
It can dismantle, degrade no matter how sweet it sounds
The same a word can heal wounds or rewound them
This word! Brings up conflicts that at times end hurting one another simply a word!
A word might be small according to one's perspective
I have realized that no matter how small something might be
that something is made up of other small things
A word can either come from the deepest point of your heart
or from the back of your mind
A word from thought or word from tongue but still "A word"
These carry different content and concepts
"The problem of many is that we don't listen to understand but to reply."
A word to say should be constructive to bring up wonderful changes
As well as to build up intrapersonal sense
because we are intellectual, educated, respective and beautiful ladies and mothers of tomorrow
A wise man said, "A word to a wise is enough."
